Comment:

Songs that just won't stop playing in one's mind are now called "ear worms". Most people have their own special ear worms, some annoying, others welcome. Here are a bunch that do that for me.

#3, 8, and 11 have caused me similar problems at one time or another. For some reason, the song that does it to me the worst is Zeppelin's "Heartbreaker."

You've wormed your way into my ears with this mix. I think having Steve Miller's Midnight Tango playing consistently would be right for me.

Some of my earworms are here too. (The welcome kind, like Celluloid Heroes.)

"Ear Worms" seems like an apt description for this phenomonon. A lot of these tracks are ear worms for me too. Great mix.

hey whats up? Okay you said you didn't know the difference between black/goth/and death metal. Death metal and black metal share similarities: both are extreme metal, both can be anti-religious, both have fast music tempos, both can sing about death, and both have fast drumming. They are different though such as death metal has more of a "growling" vocal where it's about being as brutal and harsh as possible. Very "low" sounding most of the time vocally. The tempos change in death metal too. In black metal there may be keyboards be used to make an atmosphere or have a symphonic quality to it. Not many keyboards in death metal. Black metal uses shrieking vocals and somewhat more higher vocals. Black metal bands sometimes uses white "corpse paint", not used in death metal. Goth metal can be less extreme speed and style wise but employs similar aesthetics and ethos. Type O Negative, HIM, Lacuna Coil sound nothing like Cannibal Corpse or Suffocation or Dimmu Borgir. Goth metal is depressing and singing about death and sadness in life but isn't angry so much as it is mournful and melancholy. I hope this clears it up. rock on!

yeah, glam metal and hair metal are basically the same thing. "hair metal" is more of a slightly negative slang.
